About this Item

Although like James Cagney he could dance elegantly, no film actor was more typecast as a gangster than this star of the 1930s and '40s, whose roles in such films as "Scarface" (1932) was reinforced by his real world mafia connections; in Billy Wilder's "Some Like It Hot" (1959) and Jerry Lewis's "The Ladies Man" (1961) he played a comic caricature of his earlier self. IPS, 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1960]. Very good. Faint tape stain at each corner. Later life head-and-shoulders menacing portrait of Raft in suit and tie, inscribed and signed by him in blue ballpoint in a light area left of center: "To Don / Good luck / to you always / George Raft." (The pen skips a bit on the word "always," which is probably why Raft signs and inscribes the verso of the portrait similarly, but huge and bold: "To Don, / Good Luck / to you Always / George Raft").
